More on HDs 52 and 46

Today is opening day for Filing Season, so we political junkies are going to be up to our clavicles in news, gossip, and speculation for the foreseeable future. I'm going to do my best to keep on top of things, but I can guarantee you that there'll be more than I can follow. At least we'll know for sure who's in and who's not soon enough.

So to get things started, here's a look at the "Krusee wannabees" in HD52.

Only one has filed the paperwork to raise money to explore making a race: Bryan Daniel, originally from Jarrell, who headed up the state office of rural development for the United States Department of Agriculture.

Others being mentioned are former County Commissioner Frankie Limmer, lobbyist Randy Lee, former Round Rock Council member Gary Coe, Round Rock Council Member Joe Clifford, and Larry Gonzales, chief of staff to Rep. John Otto of Dayton.

Eye on Williamson has more on these folks. Meanwhile, over in Travis County, BOR has more on Brian Thompson, the potential challenger to Rep. Dawnna Dukes. Judging from the comments to the that and their previous entry, the statement made by Dukes' consultant about the district not having any idea who Tom Craddick is did not go over well. Keep an eye on this one, it has the potential to get pretty hot.
